Holiday Visit from my Daughter Natanya Elka

My daughter came to visit over the holidays. We had a great visit.Anyway on one of my previous blogs I talked about a cloisonne necklace she had made called "The Spice Trader" . I saw the necklace on her Etsy site and fell in love with it . I was going to buy it for myself but 2 hours later it was gone. My sneaky G-d bless his heart husband bought it for me and she brought it with her when she came to visit.She also made me a beautiful pair of matching earrings. Talk about surprised and thrilled. The set is stunning.Take a look at her site you'll be amazed. She is moving her workshop to a larger space, so soon she will be super busy. I'm very excited for her.Please visit my shop The Nest Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. One of a Kind Jeweler

Auntie's Beads

I am always looking for new sites to get materials and a couple of days ago I found a new one Auntie's Beads. They carry one of my favorites beads Lapis for reasonable prices. The have a nice coin 30mm very nice for wrapping reasonable @3.49.  Also a strand of 6mm is 14.99 not a bad price either. Check out their sterling silver and Bali beads too.  Good selection and fair prices.  I have been laid up with a bad cold so I have not be very productive lately.  Want to wish all of you who do read my blog a happy and Joyous Holiday Season.  Also a reminder go to NATANYA ELKA site on  she has more amazing things posted.

Buying Handcrafted Closinne

I saw a necklace closinne on Etsy it was called the Spice Trader By NATANYA ELKA. It was so beautiful and I showed it to my husband and he agreed that it was beautiful and then he walked away. I left the computer on and then went back to check on my email and to have one last look at the piece. Guess what somebody beat me to the punch and it is gone. Go to her Etsy website she has some gorgeous work  $150.00 for something that is become a lost art form. I just might find something there to buy myself for the holidays. Her sale is 25% off. I don't know about you guys but I'm going back to find myself something.One of a Kind Jeweler
